Windows XP driver for S3 Trio64?

Recommended Posts

Using the optimized WindowsXP for overclocking (SuperPi) cause that I'm running my S3 Trio64 card in VGA mode, 640x480 16colors. That suxx.

And I cannot find a driver for Windows XP and S3 Trio64. No matter how hard I try. Only for WinNT, where the drivers are good, giving the needed 1024x768. Yes, there is the files:

s3legacy.dll

s3legacy.sys

...in WinXP install. However just copy them alone into the system32 and system32/drivers for the sys file did not do anything. I need the inf file for them and I can find only a inf file for S3Trio3D in Windows XP install, but not for the legacy S3Trio64 card. That suxx :(

 

I would also like to have better driver, that one, that can allow me 1024x768 in 256colors, as on WinNT...

 

So, anyone having any ideas?

Why not install standard vga driver for these cards? It don't allow me use 1024*768 mode but booting into vga mode via f8 gives 16bit 800*600, which is enough for 2d
